    The food options are ok. There is a large cafeteria that most students like. However, I prefer to eat healthy items and there are a limited amount of healthy shops on campus. However, there are options and options is better than nothing.

    I love the food here! There are many things to pick from such as Carls Jr. and El Pollo Loco. The lines are a bit long but they do go by fast.

    Personally I do not have a meal plan, but they are constructing a dining hall for students. Some of my roommates have meal plan and they are satisfied with it.

    There are many places where students can get food, but a lot of this food is either fast food or junk food. There needs to be more healthier choices for the students. The dining hall does have a great selection of food: carls jr, el pollo loco, chinese food, and a sub shop. If students don't like that they can always go to the student store which has a great selection of food.
